My Former Life...As a Professional Cake Decorator

Prior to mommy hood, I did many things.  My favorite of which was being a professional cake decorator.  Baking and art had always been two passions of mine that I was quite good at.  So, one day in the midst of graduate school, a light bulb went off and I decided to go to culinary school.  One of the best decisions I have made.  As Oprah says, follow your passions.

I thought that I would post some of my favorite photos of cakes that I have done in the past.  Some of these I have done from my home and some were done at the Happy Cake Co. where I worked for several years.


These were HUGE!

Luscious (and sparkly) lips!
The only cake competition I ever entered...got a 2nd place ribbon

I LOVE this cake...feel sorry for the groom, but still love it.

Don't love the colors, but love the decorations
Another marbled cake

Definitely the most difficult cake I ever did.

Wedding dress buttons


  1. Wow, fabulous cakes - love the dice, turkey and wedding dress buttons. Are you going to return to decorating in the future? Good to hear it's your favourite of your past careers, I'm just at the beginning of setting up business in cake design :)

  2. Omg the pink and brown one...and the black and white one...and the cake contest one...now I want cake really bad! Seriously though, you're so talented.

  3. You are crazy talented... I see I will just need to beg for lessons from you on fondant, versus signing up for lessons at Michaels! :)
